Nail Art Tutorial: "Sliced Watermelon" Nails

Happy Monday!!!

I start off the week with a nail art tutorial! Although it's June and we had series of strong rains a couple of days ago, it's still summer as it's blazing hot down here!!!

That's where I thought of a Watermelon nails! I've seen a couple of watermelon nails and I wanted something different! I wanted slices of watermelon coming from all directions of my nails! It is fun to get out of dainty nails and go for fun nails!!! Hope you like my work of art...nah! :D

Step 1:
Protect your nails with a coat of base coat. Apply 2 coats of ELF Light Pink polish and let dry.

Step 2:

Draw a green curve line using a thin brush or the brush from the 2-way nail art pen. Go for different directions just like photo below :)

Step 3:

Draw a same thin white line on top of the green line. I am using L.A. Colors Art Deco Polish in white.

Step 4:

Using a pink/ reddish thin brush polish from the 2 way nail art pen collection. Draw a thicker curve
(this will serve as the watermelon). Though this came out looking like candy canes!

Step 5:
Draw seed shape using black 2 way nail art pen.

Step 6:
Top with a thin glitter polish

Step 7:

Finish your work of art with your choice of top coat.

Summery Slices
of Fresh watermelon!
Ready for you to bite!

Hope this refreshes your week!
Keep smilin'
Stay Happy!
